Virtual Surrey School Games logo

The #VirtualSSG2020 Summer Term has now finished. Results will be announced to schools in the Autumn Term when details of the new activities are also shared, so keep an eye out for how to get involved next term!

For now, the activity cards are still available for you to access if you want to keep attempting a new personal best but please note the submission deadlines have now passed. You can however, get involved with the #VirtualSSG2020 Jingle & Active Surrey's Summer Activity Bingo to keep you active over the summer holidays!

The activities can be completed indoors or outdoors using minimal equipment; alternatives can be used if you don’t have exactly what’s needed.

New challenge for the next academic year (Jingles all the way...)

We're already planning the Autumn term programme and further details will be released in due course.

The Surrey School Games has always been known for bringing schools and young people together to compete and have fun. However, with a virtual programme in place we still want to create a sense of togetherness and an atmosphere.

To help we invite creative pupils to get involved in our Jingle/Chant competition to see which school, group or individual can make a Virtual Surrey School Games tune/chorus that can be used in celebrations or as encouragement when young people are taking part in the #VirtualSSG2020.

Entries close on 7 August and must be emailed to active.schools@surreycc.gov.uk For more information and requirements please see our Jingle/Chant briefing sheet.
